On the agenda for this afternoon was going to to Ritz with Sean to see X-Men: First Class. To me, going to the movies is automatically associated with snack foods (most often snuck in to the theater via large purse). I decided to scour all of my recipe sources for a Paleo snack food which:
a) could easily come to the movies with me
and b) I already had most of the ingredients for because I didn't feel like making a big shopping trip.
I found what I was looking for in Recipes for the 21st Century Hunter Gatherer by Nikki Young when I stumbled upon this recipe for Cherry Balls. The only thing I had to go buy were the cherries!
- 20 fresh cherries, de-pipped and chopped (chopping those little cherries was most definitely the worst part of this recipe)
- 2 tbs honey
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 3 tbs almond butter
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2) In a bowl, mix ingredients together. Shape mixture into balls and place onto a baking tray. I lined mine with tin foil, but wax paper probably would have worked better.
4) Place cherry balls in the fridge until cooled before serving.
